Winchcombe Day Care Centre shortlisted for funding boost
CHARITY-workers and volunteers from Winchcombe Day Care Centre are urging the public to help them win a £3,000 community grant.
The Langley Road Centre, that provides vital day care support for the elderly and frail, has been shortlisted in the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2013.
Earlier this year, more than 4,500 community groups were nominated by Lloyds Bank and whittled down to a shortlist of 1,300 local good causes - including Winchcombe School.
To help gain the top votes centre manager Carol Baker and her team are appealing to the public to cast their votes.
“As most people know the centre lost a large chunk of its funding and its survival is now largely dependent on donations and fundraising,” she said.
“This money would mean a huge amount to us and would enable the centre to continue providing its movement to music exercise programme.”
“What we need is for people to pop along to Lloyds Bank, send a text or spend just a couple of minutes online and vote for us. It’s a bit like X-factor – but for senior citizens.”
To vote visit Lloyds Bank in person, text VOTE KWND to 61119 or visit lloydsbank.com/communityfund. The deadline is midnight on Friday, November 1.
